Maybelline Color Tattoo First Impressions

So I gave into the buzz and jumped onto the Maybelline Color Tattoo bandwagon.  After watching a few video reviews on YouTube I decided to give it a whirl.  I purchased one at Rite Aid last Tuesday and was skeptical on picking up any more until I knew it would be worth it.  On Friday night I watched Makeupbyleina's YouTube review raving about all of the colors, so on Saturday morning I embarked on a mission to locate a few more.  I scored two more at CVS for $7.50 each and was able to get $5 in CVS bucks when I bought two so it wasn't too bad.

Now many people are comparing these little beauties to MAC paint pots.  Although I own a few paint pots, I can't say if they perform the same way as I use paint pots strictly as a eyelid primer so the colors that I own are neutral skin toned ones that I put eyeshadow over.  If you are familiar with MAC paint pots they do not have nearly the color range that these Maybelline shadows have.  As well, MAC paint pots are 5g and Color Tattoo's are 4g.

As a test, before we went out to dinner last night I used the color tattoo on my eyelid without using any primer (which is rare for me as eyelid primer in my book is a must), but since I read reviews that the color tattoos do not need a primer I wanted to test this out.  I wore the shadow for about 6 hours and noticed no creasing whatsoever.  As well, the vibrancy of the color seem to last.  It applied smoothly using my finger and blended well with my eyeshadow that I used in my crease.  I really do think these are a great deal and the packaging is nice and durable, it's worth a try and if you search around you may find a deal on these.

Here are some photos to enjoy :)

I apologize for the bad lighting on the close up photos of my eye, however it was already evening and couldn't get any good lighting.  Did any of you pick up any Maybelline Color Tattoo's shadows and what are your thoughts? If so, what are your favorite colors?

I really love bad to the bronze. I have that, pomegranate punk and tough as taupe. I want to pick up some more colors like the asphalt and maybe the purple, orange and either the teal or blue. I don't wear a lot of bright colors though, but they might be fun to have.
